windows ink issue when trying to change brush size with wacom pen

Recommended Posts

The new affinity programs (1.8) started using windows ink.

In windows ink there is a problem with changing stroke size with wacom pen, because windows ink intervenes some way, and so I can't use alt ctrl + right click + click to change brush size.

in windows ink dragging some sort of objects is harder, because it likes to stick and creates lag (eg. vertices on graphs). even if the press and hold  (windows ink) action is disabled.

I went over these kinds of issues in Photoshop a few years ago, when Adobe changed the input mode to windows ink.
A common workaround for Photoshop issues is using a script that disables windows ink, because it is a badly implemented thing.

See THIS POST for setting the buttons on the side of your pen. It works for me.

thank you but I won't change it, because windows ink causes other problems too: double clicking to get inside a group also doesn't work with pen.

and I need the right click context menu too. 

the only thing I could solve the lag when draging points and control points. with turning off some windows ink 'goodies' :D
